4 stars Forth album of US named The young and the restleass from 2006 is another gem from neo prog scene. Is a concept album about the controversial legend of moth man. The album divided in 14 pieces, each one with own identity. Again very strong album , at least for me, a little experimental in places, they change a little bit the direction maybe because they have now a new voice voice, aswell on previous album. Now, their ideas are very well meted with some Genesis elements in places, some Pink Floyg, some Steve Hackett - solo and even some Camel, all the ingredients are taken from those bands and incorporated some very good and fresh ideas made in US - the result is this album. More keyboard dominated then Eamon's day, more elastic in arrangements, not totaly under nep prog flag, some spacey moments some symphonic, but also their roots are not forgotten combined with neo prog elements the atmosphere is superb. They've done it again, this very underrated band who has some of the greatest arrangemets from this scene I've heared in years. Very tal;ented musicians who realy knew how to make a pleasent and enjoyble album all the way. Each musicians shines at his instruments, even in some parts the voice isa bit cold, but ok in the end. All tracks are great, and each pieces flow to each other very smooth and elegant. The best parts are opewning track - Mind Over Matter, 5 star piece, excellent, The Bridge, also are a lot of instrumental passages, just to show us they mean bussines in this filed. Again a top album who desearve a better view, not really better then Eamon's day but almost near, still they a very good band who needs attention. 4 stars , great this dutch band named US. recommended again. Great cover art made by a dutch painter in 1970.
